Powerful Performance Conversations


Programme Overview
Powerful performance conversations (PPC) is aimed anyone responsible for the performance of others who wants to enhance their skill of having these conversations and getting the best from them and the person involved. The skills developed can also be used in conversations with peers, managers and others to increase effectiveness. The programme is highly interactive and practical and focuses on the skill of having the conversation (as opposed to our Performance Management & Appraisal programme which also focuses on specific performance management tools and interventions, in particular the appraisal interview). The programme involves a high degree of skills practice.

Who Should Attend?
This programme is designed for anyone with responsibility for the performance of others at work.
